Traveled to Panama City for the first time in June for our annual Florida family vacation. The condo we had was ok but it was a poor comparison to our condo in Destin. The Tidewater seems to be well worn and most of the people we encountered were not friendly. The beach was also not as clean as Destin. I... More

So did you hear the one about the family who spent half of their vacation waiting on rides? No it wasn't Disney-- it was waiting on the elevators at Tidewater!! Honestly, it wasn't that bad, but there were times when we would be pulling our hair out and other times we actually gave up and walked down the stairs. Since... More

When we were down there PCB had a Pirates of the High Sea festival. It seemed to be a great attraction for families of all ages. We walked to Pier park almost every day. We walked the beach everyday. We had a great time and will be back again soon!

Doing all the research ahead of time prepared me for the elevator situation which I found to only be bad on the Saturday check-in. That being said I would probably never stay here during the busy season because of the elevator factor.There were plenty of carts in the lobby to unload our stuff and the walkway from the parking garage...

Condo was wonderful! Long waits for elevators at one point they were all shut down. We waited over an hour to get up to our room. It was on the 26th floor or we would have walked up. The staff was horrible and not there when you needed help. You are required to wait in line each day for your... More

We are currently at this property...Tidewater Unit 1912. We had NO issues with Tidewater Resort! However, when we arrived at unit 1912 there was opened ice cream in the freezer, used bar of soap in the shower, the floor didn't look like they had been vacuumed, wine glasses with lipstick and fingerprints, bowls with dried food all in the cabinets,...

The first time we stayed in mid Sept, it was great. The staff was great!! Everyone was nice and made out sta enjoyable. We decided to come back again because we liked how we were treated the first time. This time, we had so much problems. We arrived a bit earlier then intended and tried to check in early, but...

We will definitely be back to the Howard's Condo!! Their hospitality and gracious concern for me and my family was truly a blessing!! We were spoiled and well... More

We had a large group of friends staying here so we decided to join them at the last minute. Our room was not cleaned. Beds were unmade. Soaps were used from the previous guest and the toilets were gross. I could go into details from check-in issues to the fact that we had to take the stairs up 15 flights.... More

We are a family of four and stayed in room 1815. We had a great time. The weather was awesome the beach was beautiful. They serve Starbucks coffee in the shop on the ground floor at the end. They have everything you need to have a great unwind vacation on the beach. You see people complaining about the elevators and... More
